Ghost Recon Breakpoint was officially revealed as an evolution to Wildlands, which now boasts 15 million players worldwide.
Ubisoft announced Ghost Recon Breakpoint today and it takes place on an island in the middle of the Pacific called Auroa.
The island has been turned into a military base, so don’t expect a vacation destination. This area is the base of operations for Skell Tech, a company which produces autonomous drones – deadly ones.
According to the reveal, the island map features various biomes such as snowy mountains, forests, and an active volcano.
You can also expect new weapons and attachments adding to the options Wildlands players are familiar with. You can expect improved A.I., a new variety of enemies, PvP, and your character will have one clear progression path across all modes.
Wildlands content update Operation Oracle does indeed tie-in to Breakpoint, as it stars Ghost Team Leader, Cole Walker, played by Jon Bernthal.
The Wolves, a lethal ex-US Military unit of former Ghosts gone rogue, have taken over the island. Led by Nomad’s ex-brother-in-arms, Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, portrayed by Jon Bernthal, they have reprogrammed Skell’s drones into killing machines and are ready to use them, no matter the casualties. Nomad and the Ghosts are sent in on a recon mission, but their helicopters are shot down. Injured, without support, and hunted down, players will live an intense military experience as they fight to survive, take down the Wolves and regain control of Auroa.
During the stream, Ubisoft also announced the Gold, Ultimate and Wolves Collector’s Editions for the game, as well as the standalone Ubicollectibles figurine of Nomad. The Collector’s Edition leaked yesterday.
- The Gold Edition will include the base game and the Year 1 Pass.
- The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Year 1 Pass and the Ultimate Pack.
- The Wolves Collector’s Edition will include the base game, the Year 1 Pass, the Ultimate Pack, a Ubicollectibles figurine of Lt. Colonel Cole D. Walker, a Steelbook, exclusive lithographs, Walker’s dog tag, and a waterproof map of Auroa as well as the soundtrack.
- The standalone Ubicollectibles figurine of Nomad is available for pre-order on the Ubisoft store.
Purchasing either of the editions mentioned will give you access to the game three days early. If you pre-order any addition, standard included, you will receive access to the beta closer to launch, as well as the Sentinel Corp. pack which includes exclusive gear.
